In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Amy Sargent-Kossoff.

Amy has managed operations, marketing, and client services for various organizations in the Denver area.  She currently serves as Executive Director of the Institute for Social and Emotional Intelligence (ISEI).  Her background in teaching and ministry has given her a unique ability to authentically connect with others while providing the organizational and structural support vital to a company’s success.  Amy earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Ambassador University in Pasadena, California, then completed her Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Aesthetic Arts at the University of Denver.  She has completed the ISEI’s Coach Certification Course as well as ISEI coaching certification in Positive Psychology, Leader as Coach, and the Resilient Leader courses.  Amy is passionate about adventure travel, camping, gardening, music, and writing personal narrative.

However, in this conversation, her and I connect as like-minded nomads living the RV Life.  We talk about the process of downsizing and how we’ve embraced the understanding that for this season of our lives, less is more.

We’ve both come to appreciate that experiences are more important than things.

However, we’re also mindful of the fact that God has created each of us as individuals and we all have to come to grip with what is best for us in each stage of our lives.
